URBANA, Ill.-Who needs the doubles point? Not No. 12 Stanford, which ripped off four singles wins to knock off No. 4 Georgia 4-1 on Sunday afternoon and punch its ticket to the semifinals of the NCAA Tournament.
 
Following up its five-hour 4-3 upset of No. 5 USC on Friday afternoon, the Cardinal (20-4, 8-2 Pac-12) won a match despite losing the doubles point for the first time in two years. Next up is a Monday night semifinal against No. 1 Florida (26-2, 12-1 SEC) in a match that suddenly feels more like the national championship.
 
Leading 3-1, Krista Hardebeck provided the clincher with a 2-6, 6-1, 6-1 victory over Silvia Garcia in a battle of highly-touted rookies at the No. 3 spot.
 
More details to follow.
